I'm sure you recognize all these.

Yeah.

Every single photo that's on Alyx's profile

is also on this guy Chris' profile.

Mm-hmm (affirmative).

Except he actually has a couple more.

Alyx is not this guy, physically.

In this Season One episode,

we were contacted by a young woman named Kya.

Kya wasn't worried about whether or not she was getting catfished

because she was actually the catfish.

So you were talking to Alyx with a different name

and different picture.

Yeah.

But I guess you've never Skyped?

No, because he doesn't have a computer of his own,

so he had no way to Skype.

And so what was his reaction when you told him the truth

and I guess sent him a picture of yourself?

He pretty much told me I don't care what you look like,

I love you for you, and we just moved on from that.

Then, weirdly, she couldn't meet up with Alyx

and started to get suspicious of him,

which is why she wrote into the show.

He wants you to come see him, right-

Yeah. It's not like-

He said that I would love to meet you,

it's just money and school.

Right. I would-

The thing that I did ask him, I was like,

"Is there anything you're hiding from me?

And he told me no, so.

I think Max and I will look into it.

Okay.

See what we can find.

I really want to meet him. No matter what.

We get called in and we decide, all right,

let's look over Alyx's profile.

And not surprisingly, right away we could tell

that something was a little off.

We went into his profile and we downloaded a lot of his photos

from his profile pictures.

We just started running them through Google image search,

and one of them was a hit.

Okay.

And it took us to a Facebook profile,

and it took us to this Facebook profile.

A guy named Chris. I'm sure you recognize all these.

Yeah.

Every single photo that's on Alyx's profile

is also on this guy Chris' profile.

Mm-hmm (affirmative).

Except he actually has a couple more.

Alyx is not this guy physically.

The next big thing that we found was we

Googled Alyx's phone number.

It showed up on this blog for a guy named Dani.

So I saw that and I was like, wow.

So we looked up Dani on Facebook and it took us to this page.

They live in California and this is Dani.

We're almost completely sure

that the person you've been talking to is actually Dani.

We reached out and the person behind the Alyx profile

agreed to meet Kya face to face.

- Hi. - Hey.

- Hi.

- Hi. - Nev.

- Dani. - Hey.

- Hi.

- Hey.

So how come you didn't tell me the truth when I told you?

I was just nervous and didn't want to lose you.

I just wanted to tell you in person.

But as I always told you, I'm not going anywhere

no matter what and you can't get rid of me.

It's still in the back of my mind.

That flag, like, "No, don't do it."

I told you now.

Yeah.

Let's go sit around back there.

Obviously you're not exactly the person in the photographs.

Yeah.

So you're transgender?

Yes.

How long have you known that?

I think I was six, I might have been younger.

I knew something wasn't right about me.

At the time, I didn't know what transgender was,

but I felt like, I'm not who I'm supposed to be.

I'm different from the other kids.

I didn't know how to voice it or how to really make it,

but when I turned 18, I was like, fine,

I'm going to shave my head. [bleep] it.

I'm going to dress how I want, I'm going to buy my own clothes,

do what I want to do, and yeah, I did that.

And then I wrote my parents a letter when I was 20,

and now they've kind of started accepting it more.

Right now, I'm going through hormone replacement therapy.

I had my first shot last Friday-

Wow.

So I'm currently a week and two days on testosterone.

How many shots?

I have to do it for the rest of my life.

Oh.

I'll just go less and less throughout my lifetime.

So you've committed to that, which is a big decision.

Yes. Surgery-wise, I will get the full hysterectomy done

and the mastectomy done.

I don't know about anything else yet.

I'm usually really good about telling people

I'm trans in the beginning, like, within the first week.

Most of the time, they walk out, so I'm just used to it,

but I was just afraid of losing her.

I had this bond with her in such a short time

that I've never had with anybody else that it was just like,

I need to do what I need to do to keep this

for as long as I can.

I don't want to [bleep] it up. I don't want to lose it.

So that's why I just kept going with it.

What are your feelings, I guess, about that?

I have no problem with it. You're still a man to me, so.

That's all that matters. That's all that matters.

That doesn't change anything.

I care about his personality, not the looks.

Except I like red heads, so looks plus, added onto that.

It's a plus.

I told you, I love you no matter what.

You can't get rid of me.

While the couple was still together

when we checked in after the episode,

So what's next for you guys?

In like two weeks, I'll be flying out for a week

to visit with Kya and her family.

You must be excited.

We were talking about moving in together, and I'm like, yeah!

Unfortunately, it did come to an end.

But Dani sent an update on his life since the show,

and here is what he said.

Hi there. How's it going? Kya and I are not in touch.

We don't talk. The last we spoke was our episode.

Whoa, so I guess the last time they talked was years ago.

I had mentioned that surgery was my next step.

Well, in December of 2018,

I had top surgery, a double mastectomy.

It's healed up nicely. No hysterectomy yet,

as my doctors don't feel it's medically necessary.

Being on the show definitely helped me be more me.

It just helped me accept myself a bit more.

It is nice to know that people come on the show

to figure themselves out

and that sometimes it really works.
